Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

This recipe comes from Wendy Paul’s brand new cookbook, “101 Gourmet Cookies for Everyone”, which I just ordered from Amazon.  And when she says for everyone, she means for everyone; there are recipes for dieters, gluten free-ers and even vegans.  Zach was late to work and if you’re late, you have to bring doughnuts but I suggested cookies so these are for him to take to work when he comes home at lunch.  Anyone can bring doughnuts, but homemade Wendy Paul cookies?  I know what I’d pick!

1 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 eggs

1 (4 oz) package vanilla instant pudding mix (dry powder only)

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 1/4 cups flour

2 cups chocolate chips

Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla, eggs and pudding mix.  In a separate bowl, mix together baking soda and flour and gently add to wet ingredients.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Use a small cookie scoop to drop dough onto lightly greased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 for 8 – 10 minutes, until sides are golden.  Remove from oven and cool completely on wire rack.
